IST Set to Host Girls’ Tech Camp
Let’s face it. The College of Information Sciences and Technology lacks a significant female population. Thankfully, the College recognizes that fact and is continuing its highly successful technology summer camp for middle school girls.
This year’s camp, from June 21 to June 25, is titled “Tech Savvy Girls Summer Camp”. It’s a free camp and features two programs for attendees. The first section is all about making a 3D animations with readily available (read: free) software. The second program teaches attendees how to make video games by serving as programmers, artists, designers, and producers.
Applications for the camp will be accepted until May 14th and applicants must choose between the two sessions. Mifflin County residents should click here for the application. Centre County (and the surrounding area) residents should click here for the application.
I’ve heard from some of the staff and faculty that have run this program in the past that participants have a great time. Hopefully, attendees will come away from the program with a new (or renewed) interest in technology and eventually boost the number of females in the College of IST.
